Creating a comprehensive estate plan that addresses the needs of special needs children requires careful thought and attention to detail. Janelle Cremé, Esq. works closely with her clients to develop personalized strategies that encompass various aspects, including:

Special Needs Trusts: One of the most effective tools for providing financial security for a special needs child is a special needs trust. This trust allows parents to set aside assets for the benefit of their child without jeopardizing their eligibility for government benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Janelle assists families in establishing and managing special needs trusts, ensuring that the funds are used to enhance the quality of life for their loved one while preserving their eligibility for essential benefits.

Guardianship and Conservatorship: Planning for the care and decision-making authority for a special needs child requires careful consideration of guardianship and conservatorship arrangements. Janelle guides families through the legal process of appointing guardians and conservators who will advocate for the best interests of the child and ensure their needs are met when parents are no longer able to do so.

Letter of Intent: A letter of intent is a valuable document that provides guidance to caregivers and trustees regarding the specific needs, preferences, and routines of a special needs child. Janelle assists parents in drafting comprehensive letters of intent that outline their child’s unique requirements, preferences, and aspirations, empowering caregivers to provide the best possible care and support.
